Roe in snow wall print

A winter scene like this in southwest France is unusual, and when it snowed for the second time last winter, Arthur-Coriolan set out very early one morning to take photos. But after an hour and a half, he had found only the tracks of a hare and a deer.

 

Then, as it started to get light, a pair of roe deer appeared in the distance. His lens wasn’t able to zoom in on the animals, and so he decided to compose an image that made the most of the surroundings and to experiment with the diagonal lines of the ploughed field. ‘I’m glad I couldn’t take a close-up portrait of the deer,’ he says. ‘I prefer the minimalist atmosphere, which reflects that bitterly cold morning.’
